We got off the vintage tram on our way back to Porto from Foz at the museum. There is a good collection of vintage trams if transport is your interest. We then walked back into Porto along the river 30/40 minutes.

I am sure the Museum would have been interesting but it was closed to visitors for two days on 24-25 May with no warning or explanation on the museum website. Very disappointing for those visitors to Porto for only a few days.
